Year 10 Assessment

Maths

You will be assessed using a Foundation Non-Calculator GCSE 9-1 paper, this will contain many of the topics that you have covered in maths so far this year. You have a detailed list of topic areas to focus on for revision and have started to look at this already. Useful websites to support revision would be Hegarty Maths, Maths Watch (login pnumber@fiveislands, password isosceles) and Just Maths (login FiveStudent, password Five).

 

English

During assessment week, Year 10 will be writing a GCSE essay on 'An Inspector Calls'. The question and 'I can' statements being measured are shown on the Autumn Quadmester study guide. To prepare, the students will be completing mind-map essay plans and learning key quotations. They should use the sets of revision cards in my Year 10 class on Quizlet (www.quizlet.com), to help them learn key quotations and contextual information. Further revision materials can be found on BBC Bitesize or www.shmoop.com. Revision videos by Mr Bruff on YouTube can also be useful.

 

Science

Students will be sitting end of unit GCSE style tests at either Higher or Foundation Tier for both CP1 Motion and CP2 Forces and Motion. They have been given full checklists of what content they need to cover and have been supported to identify their areas for development amongst these. They have full access to the Edexcel produced interactive textbook which is full of practice questions, including examination questions. They can also use BBC Bitesize and Doddle to support their revision if they choose.

 

Triple Science

Students will be sitting written exam-style papers for their Separate Science assessment. Students will be assessed on their understanding of radioactivity used in medicine, nuclear energy and astronomy. Specific checklists on lesson objectives have been supplied to students and exam-style questions have been practiced. To support revision, students can also access support from online activities using the ActiveLearn website, Doddle and BBC Bitesize.

 

 

Geography

You will be assessed on plate tectonics and coastal landscapes.

 

History

During assessment week, Year 10 will be writing a GCSE 'substantiated judgement' on an area of the 'Life Under Nazi Rule' programme of study. The question and 'I can' statements being measured are shown on the Autumn Quadmester study guide. To prepare, the students should use the notes in their books and the sets of revision cards they have made.  Each student has a copy of the textbook, which sets out in detail all the key content for the course. They may find that the OCR B exam preparation pages on BBC Bitesize https://www.bbc.co.uk/education/guides/z8rfj6f/revision/1 are useful for them.
